Road Safety Audits

A road safety audit is an evaluation of a section of road by an independent, multi-disciplinary team. These audits document safety issues (including those due to human factors) and identify potential improvements to address those challenges. A road safety audit is a low-cost way to improve safety and is extremely beneficial in a rural area where agencies may not have access to as many safety professionals trained to conduct these services.

This section provides resources and training on road safety audits.
